OGDEN, Utah (AP) Damon Bankston ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns to lead Weber State to a 35-10 win over Division II Central Washington in a season-opener Thursday night.

Weber State blanked Central Washington in the second half, even though the teams posted comparable total yardage. The D-II Wildcats ran 74 plays on offense and amassed 276 yards. The FCS Wildcats ran just 54 plays for 306 yards.

Kylan Weisser completed 12 of 21 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown to lead Weber State. The Wildcats added 190 yards rushing.

JJ Lemming completed just 11 of his 30 pass attempts for 90 yards and was sacked twice. Kennedy McGill was 2-of-4 passing for 34 yards and added a team-high 55 yards rushing on 13 carries. Central Washington fumbled three times but recovered all three.
